Report: OUTSTANDING chirp to Patrick Reed at US PGA prompts caddie reaction!

Patrick Reed likely didn't enjoy his 2023 PGA Championship

The American, 32, was one of 16 LIV Golf players in the field at Oak Hill. If you didn't know, the course is located in New York.

To the uninitiated, that means the players competing at the monster layout were on the receiving end of more than a few barbs and insults. 

"It is what it is," Bryson DeChambeau said of the jibes after he played his third round alongside Brooks Koepka

DeChambeau added that he didn't care. As for Reed, one spectator said something that caused a reaction from his caddie. 

That's according to CBS reporter Kyle Porter:

Unfortunately there is no video footage of the alleged moment, so we'll have to keep our eyes peeled to see if any comes out. 

Reed and his caddie have a long history filled with drama. 

Perhaps the most memorable moment came during the 2019 Presidents Cup where the aforementioned Karain simply had enough of the verbal abuse Reed was getting. 

Reed was told 'you f***ing suck' by a fan which prompted Karain - who is also Reed's brother-in-law - to jump out of a golf cart, shove the fan and fire a few expletives. 

Security were forced to step in during the incident. Video later showed officials confronting Karain and following Reed's cart.

Karain was sacked from the final day of the cup by tournament organisers. 

US PGA Tour officials investigated the incident, but the caddie insisted he was just 'protecting his player' and the only damage was a 'spilled beer'. 

Making a statement to Fore Play, Karain later said:

"We have been known for having fun with some good banter, but after hearing several fans in Australia for three days some had taken it too far. 
"I had had enough. And this gentlemen was one of them."
